Inmate tax proposed to bolster ER funds
Orange County supervisors are scrambling to find a new way to steer more taxes to fund overburdened hospital emergency rooms.
To date, they've been unwilling to use a state law allowing them to hike fines for traffic tickets. But Supervisor John Moorlach has another idea.
Tax illegal immigrants landing in Orange County jails.
Local activists were stunned by the idea.
"Truly inhuman," said Amin David, president of Los Amigos of Orange County. "I just can't fathom it. I thought I'd heard everything. It just doesn't stop."
Reading this article I'm torn between wanting to cheer for the great idea, cry over the fact that Moorlach seems to want to apologize at the same time he's suggests it and throw up in my mouth over the comments that the illegal alien apologists have made. Read the whole thing.
